  1. Locked for unauthorized advertising on the forum for commercial purposes
  2. Nothing? This truly is landmark for our profession. We finally have the largest payor allowing us to be able to control our own financial destiny by billing and being reimbursed for the care we provide. And many third-party payors take their cue from Medicare. It all begins here. This was the single biggest thing we could’ve done to advance our profession. Name change doesn’t have the same impact, because at the end of the day money talks- and if you can’t control your financials as a provider, you ultimately don’t have a path forward autonomous of everyone else
  3. FINALLY!!!!!! https://www.aapa.org/news-central/2020/12/coronavirus-relief-omnibus-agreement-authorizes-pas-to-receive-direct-payment-under-medicare/
  4. Got my first shot yesterday morning before my shift- completely fine yesterday, and then some chills this morning that resolved with motrin + tylenol Second shot in 3 weeks
  5. We’re getting the Pfizer vaccine on the 14th, and Moderna on the 22nd. I’ll take the Pfizer since it’s the first available
  6. It’s constantly astounding to me that “whataboutism” is still considered by some people as a valid logical argument
  7. Totally agree, and this is more for younger PAs or PA students who are reading this- Once you let that genie out of the bottle, there’s no putting it back in. At the least you become the person that everyone figures out they can go to for a script and it’s harder and harder to say no. If you hold your ground and don’t do it, people eventually stop asking you. The worst one I had was an ER tech at a hospital I used to work at who asked for a percocet prescription- he did have a legit finger injury though that had already been treated. I was floored he even attempted to ask
  8. You know why we didn’t have mandatory masks and shutdowns during H1N1? Because we very very quickly had a vaccine available
  9. The PA Forum was around long before the Huddle, and will likely be here long after it as well
  10. Agreed Have moved to the appropriate forum
  11. What specific program are you referring to? UT San Antonio? UTMB in Galveston? UT Southwestern? UT RGV? All these programs have their own forums
  12. Wow Ventana you're right- the last several articles going back several months are ultimately ads for malpractice insurance
  13. I had shifts dropped in April, but much to my amazement my group actually filed for reimbursement for the CARES act and I got all my back pay that was cut. Now currently I’m working 1-2 less shifts a month due to volume, but I know I’m very grateful to have a great job and an employer who bothered to apply for federal funds for their providers
